Been wanting to get back to the Caribbean Room? Craving Commander's Palace, but funds are tight this month? Dying to try new and fresh New Orleans restaurants like Maypop and Lula's? Here's your chance as New Orleans' Coolinary Restaurant Month kicked off August 1st! For the entire month of August, restaurants will offer discounted dining deals across the city.
The deals follow a similar format to previous years, with restaurants offering prix-fixe menus for no more than $39. This year, more than 90 restaurants have joined the list, including several newcomers to the scene. New Orleans restaurant institutions like Galatoires, Antoine's, Brigsten's, and Pascal's Manale all make repeat performances and offer diners an opportunity to revisit old favorites without breaking the bank.
It's easy to find out which 85 restaurants are participating: Visit Coolinaryneworleans.com. There, you'll find the list of restaurants, with location details, sample menus, price and a convenient reservations button. (Note: You also can enter a sweepstakes to win dinner for six at Brigtsen's.)
Some restaurants offer brunch, lunch and dinner, some just one or two of those seatings. Also note, some restaurants have black-out dates for Fridays and Saturdays. The most expensive dinners are $39. Prices for brunches and lunches vary.
